"Praise the Name" - J. Susse

Friday, October 02 - 11:00AM to 12:00PM
Medallion C

Although you may not be familiar with his name, you are familiar with his work. This presentation will take a look into the life of Josiah Susse, also known as J. Susse, a man intent on saving America. In actuality, J. Susse is a fictional creation by the artist used to mock the confluence of religion and politics. Humor and satire are used to explore the media’s creation of modern prophets out of talking heads and celebrities. Through over-the-top and often humorous images, questions are raised about the ridiculous and often over-the-top things done and said by these new prophets.
